dc.description.abstract The study explored the impact of the QUIPS project on the primary education system in Ghana by employing the Tano District as a case study. The underlying principle was that the implementation of the QUIPS project in primary schools will increase the enrolment of pupils, improve performance of both teachers and pupils and also bring about greater community participation in the management of schools. The sample consisted of 474 pupils, 18 teachers and three headteachers drawn from the three QUIPS schools in the Tano District of the Brong Ahafo Region. The main instruments used for the study were a questionnaire and an observation checklist. The intervention included supplying more teaching-learning materials (TLMs) to the sampled schools, providing the needed infrastructure facilities, staffing the schools with qualified and professional teachers, (already in the system), involving the local community in the management of schools and regular supervision from the District Directorate of Education and the national secretariat of the QUIPS project. The key findings of the study were that at the end of the intervention, enrolment in the schools had increased, the communities had become more involved in the management of their schools and performance of teachers and pupils had improved. Based on the findings of the study, the researcher recommends that the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MOEYS) and the Ghana Education Service (GES) should extend the QUIPS project to as many primary schools as possible to help achieve the aims and objectives of the Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education (FCUBE) programme in the shortest possible time. en_US
